. that's the plan to reach the deficit target. that's the best case scenario because the budget is based on a growth assumption of 0.8% which seems to be far too optimistic. plenty of private economists believe the french economy won't grow more than 0.3% next year. in that case, the government will need to find an additional 5 feweuro of spending cuts on t of what will be announced today. the budget will include one very symbolic measure, new tax rate of 75% for people earning more than 1 million euros per year. it will be implemented only on around 2,000 people and it will raise only 200 million euros. so that's a symbolic measure that the prime minister has been clear already saying that it was a patriotic contribution to help the country recovery. also the government will confirm today probably that the bracket for the income tax in france won't be adjusted anymore to the inflation. that seems to be technical, but it means that with the same salary next year, people here will pay much more taxes than they used to pay. so basically, yes, it's focused on a tax increase. it's really imp
vulnerability for the president may be the deficit. he promised to cut it in half by the end of his term but it's now topped $1 trillion for four straight years. the "new york times" cbs news poll found in ohio, romney has a slim four-point lead on the deficit. today, the "washington post" fact checkers gave the president four pinocchios for claiming on cbs' "60 minutes" 90% of the boost in deficit came from leftover bush policies. >> we took emergency actions. that accounts for 10% of this increase in the deficit. >> now the economy is front and center one week from tonight at the first presidential debate. two days later the president gets a september jobs report. interesting a moment ago he told the crowd he wants to export more jobs. quickly correcting himself and said he wants to export more products and joked i was channeling my opponent there. bret? >> bret: standing next to carl are you? it looks like carl's backdrop. ed henry -- >> very similar. >> bret: thank you very much. now to the international news. close circuit video of twin bombings at the headquarters in damascus. the first b

[applause] in keeping with the discussion, he is keen on innovation and things of that nature. i know that will come out. thank you, governor. >> are we all set? i am from the "mercury news," and we're here because we live in a global cloueconomy. it has altered local economies because so many manufacturing and technology jobs are moving, whether it is a matter of costs for going where the trained work force is. we're fortunate to have to
to get the deficit down to 4.5% deficit. quite frankly, that is pie in the skil according to pretty much all the analysts and the economists. and it's just a question of how much they'll miss by. because this economy is enacting extreme austerity, and this debate is relevant whether it's obama or romney. is austerity actually denting growth, is it creating more problems than it solves. let me give you one example. we have a sales tax in this country that has been raised from 16% to 18% to 21%. that has created a slight inflation issue. now, pensions are inflation linked. and this country in november has to increase pension abouts by inflation. so by raising 2.5 billion euro v.a.t., it will cost them 3.5 billion euro misincreased pension costs. so you can see the conundrum. they're enacting enormous amounts of austerity, but that's denting an economy which is already in recession. its second since 2008. and things are getting worse. 25% unemployment, a million up sold homes. and we haven't even talked about the banking crisis and the autonomous region, some of which including catalonia ar
came in office. i inner hadited the biggest deficit in our history. the last four years it went up and 90 percent is consequence of two wars that were not paid for and tax cut that is were not paid for . prescription drug plan not paid for and worst economic crisis since the great depression. that accounts for 10 percent of the increase in the deficit. >> brian: front page of the new york times. stuart rather thaney it is over one trillion. every budget when they do the math he is over budget by a trillion dollars. >> gretchen: he said 10 percent. wars and the horrible recession he was begin that only accounts for 10 percent. >> yes. >> gretchen: what about the other 90 percent? >> steve: george bushes fault? >> gretchen: i am anding a question. >> you are exposing the attitude of the establishment media to all of president obama and his economic record. break it down. the president said i am only 10 percent responsible for a massive accumulation of debt. he is a big spender, a very big spender and that's the principle reason why we have a massive deficit of trillion a year. he has
. the 2012 budget had 64 billion euros worth of austerity built into it. that was designed to get the deficit levels right back to those iconic levels, but they missed on their deficit star get last year and they'll miss on this year. they're hanging on to #.5% bond you this believes if not reable because austerity on top of a recessionary environment is a toxic mix. >> the ecb saying spanish bank deposits down 1.1% on the month in august, which means they're now the lowest level since april 2008. and we've got a prime minister there who has effectively said to the markets come out and short me because we're not going to go for a bailout unless webo costs go higher. and he's trying to delay aid until after the catalonia elections. and that seems like a pretty thin tight rope to walk. loan i. >> and we'll get the report on just how much money the banks need. it is suspected it will be in the 60 billion plus. but the elections on october 21st, that's rajoy's own province. and then you have the cat lo loaniloa loanian region think they're the richest region giving too much to the others. the res
blamed republicans and the bush should ministration for the deficit. >> by the times be rains were turned over to barack and me, they had doubled the national debt in eight years. >> today, paul ryan campaigned in new hampshire. the granite state has four electoral votes. but that could make a difference in the race that could come down to a handful of states. >> thank you for sending mitt romney to the white house and barack obama back to chicago. >> the campaign is shifting to a different stage this week with wednesday night's showdown between president obama ann romney. >> if you have taken a look at the history of debates, it is not about policies. is not about facts. it has changed because someone did badly or did well. >> both candidates are in intense prep sections. romney may have the most on the line. his campaign is looking at this as a chance for a game changer. >> one more note from the campaign trail. and a four paul ryan has confirmed -- and aide for paul ryan has confirmed you will spend three days preparing for his debate with vice president joe biden. and new information
bringg in 87 billion dollars. with a deficit of a trillion plus, you still have a 900 billion dollarr deficit and if you have a trillion dollar deficit. it brings in 8divide million from the rich and you still have 913 billion of red ink . and you can crazy and trash the millionaires and take every red cent they earn . every millionaire will have the entire income confiscated. you trash the institution and confiscate the red cent and you bring in 839 billion. >> steve: you are way short. >> brian: we are short a trillion every year. >> you don't have a taxing problem. this is a spending problem. it is solved by reducing spend reforming entitlements over the long term. taxing the rich will make barely any difference . it is a political slogan. >> steve: right now the president wants to get reelected so he has the key to air force one. >> he thinks that if you tax the rich that brings in votes. >> steve: we are talking about increasing the taxes on the rich. what people forget about. taxes for everyone are scheduled to go up next year. >> yes, they will. >> steve: everybody is going to
the math work on his deficit plan and his tax plan. are we going to get those details in the course of the debate? >> well, you know, david, i wish you guys were just as tough on the president. the president says he's going to create a million new manufacturing jobs. he doesn't say how. he says he's going to reduce the long-term debt and deficit by $4 trillion. doesn't say how he's going to do it. you know, let's be fair here. governor romney has laid out a direction and a vision for the direction of this country. he's not an accountant. he's not going to go line by line as much as you'd like him to do through the budget. but let's hold the president to the same standard and criticize him as well. >>> good morning, it is monday, october 1st. it's october, everybody. welcome to "morning joe." >> yeah, you know who's glad september's over? >> who? >> the jets. holy cow! >> i thought you were going to say mitt romney. with us on set, we have msnbc and "time" senior political editor mark halperin and national affairs editor for "new york" magazine john heilemann. guys. hi, willie. >> he
market companies? and what do we do about the deficit? >> john, it's great to have you on the program. thank you so much. >> thanks, maria. >> john thain joining us as chairman and ceo at cit. let's get to brian shackman. >> fascinating to look at this. they beat on eps and revenue. the the revenue was 6.67. take a look at the stock. it is dropping and continues to drop. now down 4%. it's been a percent every two minutes during that thain interview. we were looking at margins, looking at china, and the u.s. margins were compressed. that's a negative. china was better than expected. that's not offsetting things. u.s. was better than expected. that's not offsetting things. europe was supposed to be up 3.4%. it was down 5%. they paid more in taxes. their sg&a means they're spending more than they're taking in. it's a mixed bag. >> all right, brian. thank you so much. meanwhile, we told you research in motion out with earnings. the stock is soaring in the extended hours trading session. what does that mean to investors in we have the analysis on r.i.m. next. >>> and would you spend twice
in this format is a huge deficit, and they kept winning matches and they really seemed if one was ahead, another one would get ahead and they fed on each other and the next thing it was a tied match going into the end and the europeans pulled it off. >> the crowd must have been stunned. >> yeah, it was ryder cup crowds, they're really like nothing else in golf because fans act like fans at every other sporting event. they cheer very loudly. there was a strong european contention. on sunday definitely the strategy by the europeans was to take the crowd out of it. they got up early. they sent out their best players. they sent out luke donald. they sent out justin rose. they sent out rory mcilroye. they quieted the crowd in chicago and that's why they were able to win. >> tiger woods has been getting a lot of blame by the media here in the u.s. does he deserve it, do you think? >> i mean, over the course of its career, the ryder cup has been a place where he's not performed to the level he has in other spots. i do think that the format of the ryder cup is different. i mean, you look at the way peop
. deficit larry mean that is you are spending more than you are taking in. there are two things that you can do. you have to look at the spending to determine what you have to hold on. you have to set a priority to control spending. in the second thing you must have a program to increase growth in this country and new revenue. that makes a lot of the decisions about spending easier. you get more money coming in. >> president, you have been accused by your critics of failing to deal with entitlement spending reform and basically trying to raise taxes as the only means of deficit spending. are those charges fair? >> absolutely not. we had a deal going. myself and mr. baynor until mr. can toter stepped in. what i could support is that we would have tax cuts and we would have cuts in the budget and in areas certain revenues and increased ed in taxes. it seems fair $1 of tax increases and $3 to $4 of cuts in the budget. >> 3, to $4 to $1. could you guy into that? do you think your fellow republicans could buy into that? >> the more taxes you raise, the less growth you get. that is a economic pro
of spending cuts or deshl resources to meet its 2013 deficit target. and fitch is lowering its 2012 growth forecasts both for china and india. citing deteriorating outlook of the global economy. so not a great way to start the morning. >> no, not great, but i like seeing what we did -- i saw ge and i was going to tell whoever thinks that we need to kiss up to them still -- >> minority partner. >> they are. but comcast would have been a better -- or we could have done both. and did i see something that it had first quarter, second quarter, third quarter? what do i need in the fourth quarter to get to the 30%? do we hahave that anymore? is that gone? no, they don't have it. >> i saw the dow, s&p and nasdaq. >> what did it add up to? adds up to like 15 or so. >> i just saw for this quarter. >> oh, it didn't show first quarter, second quarter -- >> no. >> there are corporate headlines. people started getting plaq blackberries? >> they beat expectations. >> they lost money, they beat expectations. >> but they added subscribers. >> subscribers in developed countries. the point is a developing --
of initiatives to educate voters on issues in the election. the debt and deficit exceed $16 trillion. his article will appear tomorrow in usa today. we will show you an excerpt in just a moment. first some context to ross perot. when he ran as a third-party, he talked about the growing debt. \ [video clip] >> the world of a unlamented opportunity. what what they say to us if they knew by the year 2000 we will have left them with a national debt of $8 trillion? what would they say if they knew we make them the first generation of americans with a standard of living below the generation below them? we cannot do this to our children. in this election we have the opportunity to choose a candidate not a career politician, but a proven business leader with the ability to take on the tasks at hand. to balance the budget, to expand the tax base, to give our children back the american dream. the candidate is ross perot. the issue is our children. the choice is yours. host: from 1992 when he ran his first of two independent bids for the white house, falling short in 1992 and 1996. one viewer says we need t
. you need to take account of the fiscal deficit, which cannot go like that anymore, and the same thing with the external deficit, and that will require, of course, some adjustments, and nobody wants adjustments. people want miracles. in economics you don't have miracles. you just have good policy and hard work. >> are you encouraged by the policies that you are now seeing from both the europeans and the americans, or really do you sit here thinking more, more please? >> we're not impressed because i think that we have lost the last three years. since the crisis that started in 1988 -- 1998 and 1999, we knew we have not been able to tackle the real causes of the crisis. it has not been done in europe. it has not been done in the u.s. we are talking too much and doing too little. >> now, if this was any leader in latin america, perhaps people would ignore him, but this is the president that's running strong free market economies and policies, and that's why when somebody like this harvard ph.d. economist speaks, president as well, suzanne, people listen. of course, it reinforces what cou
on their budget plan, on deficit reduction, but i believe it was haley barbour and others that say the president is not being held to that same standard, the example they bring up is that the president says 1 million jobs -- mitt romney said 12 million and he has not explained but nevertheless, they see this is not equal treatment. when the president is on stage domestic policy, will he be under more fire to talk about the direction of the country because the responsibility and the onus right now is on him being the incumbent? >> i mean, absolutely. here's the reality. if you look at this in terms of, you know, what i think is going to end up happening in this debate, both candidates are going to force -- are going to be forced to answer the gaps if you will. i think the difference is, romney's gaps are the size of the grand canyon. the president i think has laid out pretty clear specific agenda in terms of where he wants to go. plus he has a record that he can go back to. he has a record he has to defend. but romney's problem is, this incredible reluctance to give any details about the loophole
even to grips witness. >> reporter: in 2009 president obama pledged to cut the budget deficit in half by the end of his first term. obviously with the budget deficit still at 1.2 trillion that hasn't happened. how does he get past that at the debates? >> as he said, central to his entirely election argument is things were much worse than we thought they were. the country was in a much-worse situation and the americans who lived through the panic of 2008 tend to agree with him, they tend to easily recall what it was like when they opened their 401k statements before this election in 2008 and said, gee, this is not working. the president does have that going in his favor. the thing that makes him more vulnerable is this. this is where romney can really get him. the president said if he got the more than trillion dollars in stimulus packages that he wanted that he could get unemployment down under 8%, and that is not what happened. so what romney will argue is, that the president has failed and that the failures have been simply too expensive. and you know the new sewing began in romney
. we're in a $16 trillion deficit, unemployment remains over 8%. these are the things that matter to the american people above all else. that's the message governor romney needs to stay on. >> yeah, but doesn't he need a policy and a plan? i mean, doesn't he sound stupid himself saying it's the economy, stupid, but i'm not going to give you a plan of what i'm going to dough abo about the ec until after i get in? i mean, i understand the slogan is, it's the economy, stupid, but we're not that stupid. >> obviously, that's an old coined term. >> yeah, i got it. >> but this tape, i think it was taken out of context. has it been damaging? i can't sit here and say this tape was good for the romney campaign but statistically it doesn't seem to have as great an impact as the media was saying. i think it was a mistake and taken out of context and i think the american public has to decide if it matters to them or not. >> tad, let me explain to you what joe biden said in virginia today as he took on romney on this 47%. look at this. >> he attacks 47% of the american people who he says pay no
. >> $80 billion? >> it's like 80 build per year. and we need to cut -- close the deficit by a trillion. we got a trillion dollar deficit and it raises like -- i think it's less. maybe 40 billion. >> are you correct, it's not sufficient. >> and he's not talking about anything else. you can keep your entitlement, keep this -- he's not talking about doing specific things with entitlements. >> you're right to this extent. he's not talking specifics on entitlements. >> it's mostly we'll tax rich people so that -- or people that make over 250 and you'll basically get to keep everything including the phones. >> joe, i thought you either wanted to talk about the last minute kick that a billy -- >> i didn't see that. oh, the redskins. >> or my terrific story on debates in the "new york times" this morning. >> it was between piece. it was a very good piece. >> i did see that. >> thank you. let me recap. >> you didn't even mention the bengals beat the redskins. >> i was going to if you brought it up. and congratses on the reds, too. they have tied the nationals for best record in baseball. so we've g
looking at it with regard to krugman's piece and something to do with the deficit, is that going to be spun positively if they're working on it or more fearmongering that something really heinous will go down. >> okay. so keep sticking with what's working for now. we'll keep an eye on this. but kevin, thank you. you always keep us up-to-date on everything happening down there. >> one more quick thing i'll say. watch silver. a lot of popularity in it. we didn't get an outright sell signal, but we got very bearish divergences for silver when it made a new high yesterday. trading over $41 on ebay for silver coins. well over the price in the marketplace. so watch out for that. could be an actionable trade. >> okay, kevin. thanks for the tip. >>> if you have any questions, comments about anything you see here, squawk@cnbc.com. coming up, the chicago teachers strike back in the headlines this morning. we'll find out why next. and then ian poulter's in the building. attention golf fans ever where. >> look at that. every player's name. unbelievable. >> got to be careful. >> i don't want
